New Hitman: Absolution Screenshots Reveal The Culprit Of An Electrifying “Prank”

May 4, 2012Written by Nick Michetti

Yesterday’s reveal of the front page of the Hope News Times Issue #3 showed that a young man who died had apparently fallen victim to some kind of prank. Today, new screenshots show who was responsible for the events that led to his death.

The young man, Gavin LeBlond, had touched an electrified fence on the perimeter of a scrap yard while apparently smoking — or about to smoke — a cigarette. The sheriff said that the fence had been hooked up to a mega-voltage generator and that the “prank” was no laughing matter. One of today’s released screenshots appears to show that it was Hitman: Absolution protagonist Agent 47 who hooked the generator cables up to the fence. Agent 47 apparently had been disguised as a worker and hooked the cables up to the fence himself. No details have been released as to why Agent 47 did this, whether or not it was deliberate, and what LeBlond might have done to become a target — if he indeed was one.

The other screenshot is the image of LeBlond that was on the front page of the Hope News Times Issue #3.
